Patch of Blue

A SHOW centred around a famous symbolic journey, inspired by the parables, will be coming to Somerset next month.

The production Godspell, performed by the Patch of Blue theatre company, will bring a fresh and exciting take on the Gospel of Matthew, while using Christian teachings to embody the concepts of love, care and unity.

The parables are taken out of the original context and thrust into a scene of urban poverty, where the disciples are from all walks of life. Jesus, played by Emily Thompson, comes into this and through him the individuals in the cast find a sense of community.

However, the heartfelt atmosphere is challenged by the turmoil of each character and most importantly by Judas, played by Mark Gregory.

Set entirely in a junkyard, the play represents every aspect of life and every person. The show also aims to be accessible to children and adults and focuses on a strong visual and audio representation, so that it might be accessible to a deaf or blind audience member.

Godspell will take place on July 17 at The Clocktower, at Rossholme, East Brent, at 7.30pm.

Tickets, priced £4-6, are available from www.brownpapertickets.com or can be purchased on the night.
